Race 2: Expecting the unexpected

Venturing out on a Eid-e- Milad day in Mumbai requires lots of courage especially towards the late evening. Being a movie buff, I had to take up the task and prove myself.

Race 2, sequel to an Abbas Mustan movie, released after a wait  of 5 long years. Expectations were high right from the word go. So, couldnt afford to miss a single sequence. Paying high gratitude to the Milad processions, it built up a perfect prequel to the movie. It was finally a "race" to the theatre. And you could expect yours truly to never miss the beginning of any movie. Today was no exception.

The movie starts with a bang in typical Abbas-Mustan style and carries on from there. The chase sequence is breathtaking. It gives us heavy relief from the absurd South Indian fight sequences. The locales are amazing. Music is foot tapping especially the Be Intehaan and Party on my mind numbers.
We start expecting the unexpected now. The plot now deepens. The entire cast is very much up to it. Saif, John Abraham and Anil Kapoor all play their parts with élan. Their female counterparts however, do not have meaty roles to boast of. The ending could have been better with some little more editing.

All in all, seems a good entertainer though. The director duo does not let you down once again.
